Our ServicesProfessional and experienced
We’re very proud of our practice, from our homely waiting room to the state of the art sterile operating theatre. Our first class facilities and highly experienced, caring team ensures we can offer the best service for your pets. We have separate dog and cat waiting areas, separate dog and cat wards.
We believe that to provide veterinary care of the highest standard takes longer than many practices traditionally offer. Our standard 15 minute and 30 minute optional extended consultations allow every patient and pet owner time to discuss concerns with the vet or nurse.
We have 4 very experienced vets each with an interest in different areas of practice. Lead by Anna Marshall-Brown who is an Advanced Veterinary Surgeon, our vet and nurse team complete a lot of CPD (Continued Professional Development) in order to keep up to date with the latest developments in medicines, surgical techniques and preventative healthcare of your pets.
We are focused on minimal stress for all pets visiting our practice and use kind handling techniques. We offer cat friendly clinics five days a week and a home visit service to help if your pet gets worried by coming in.
We offer 15 minute vet and nurse appointments as standard so we have enough time to really get to know you and your pet. It can be stressful having a sick or injured pet, we feel it is important to diagnose issues and have time to discuss treatment options with you before making a decision together. Longer 30 minute consultations are available for second opinions and more complicated cases.
We have great operating facilities and equipment at Henlow Veterinary Centre and perform a range of routine, elective and emergency procedures. Whether your pet needs to be neutered or have an complex orthopaedic procedure they will be in the best hands. We operate to hospital standards using qualified veterinary nurses (RVN) to monitor anaesthetics with capnography. Patients are kept warm before during and after operations and are recovered in our prep room by a nurse or veterinary care assistant (VCA). Our patients are given pain relief before during and after operations as appropriate. A number of post operative check ups are included in our operation prices.
We have 4 qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses. They hold 15 minute consultations for mobility assessment, older pet checks, weight management, nail clipping, microchipping, post operative care and much more.
Cat Only Clinic
If your feline friend finds a trip to vets a bit stressful, why not come to our cat-friendly clinic held on Tuesdays between 11:30am and 12:30pm. With the exception of emergencies, no dogs will be seen at this time; this helps some more stressed cats relax on their visits to us.
Does your pet have smelly breath? Dental disease affects 80% of cats & dogs over 4 years of age and can have serious health implications. Ask about our dental checks and keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
We have our own in-house laboratory and the latest equipment so we can quickly get to the bottom of your pets illness. It is important to know what is causing your pet to be unwell so an appropriate treatment can be selected. We routinely swab ears, take skin scraps and analyse blood and urine samples in-house. More complicated tests are run by our external Laboratory partner near Shillington.
Making the decision to end a pets life can be a very difficult one. We are here to guide you through this sad time. We offer consultations with a vet or nurse to help you understand why it might be necessary and kindest to put your pet to sleep. Many practices will leave it here but we feel offering advice and care after this point is just as important. Please speak to a member of staff for more information or pick up a guide for dealing with family loss.
